Bloomsbury  is located on the south side of the Musconetcong River in the northwest corner of Hunterdon County.  The name is derived from the Bloom family, who were influential in the early history of the town.  It was once part of Bethlehem Township, but was incorporated as a separate borough in 1905.

The Borough was originally known as "Johnson's Iron Works," named after the charcoal work of Robert Johnson on the north bank of the river.  In colonial days, ore from the Musconetcong Mountain was carried down to the river and made into "blooms," masses of wrought iron from the forge.  This is another theory of how the Borough received its name.

Bloomsbury is the third smallest municipality in Hunterdon County.  While the 20th century saw some expansion of Bloomsbury's residential area, the general character of Bloomsbury as a quiet, tree-lined, small town still remains today.  We are proud of our community and hope you enjoy your visit.

Winter Snow Removal
After Council’s review of the Borough’s snow removal practices, a decision was made that non-essential alleys that are difficult to navigate either by reason of their configuration or man-made obstructions will be cleared when man power and conditions permit. As a result, if plow drivers of the Borough’s DPW determine in their sole discretion that accessing or attempting to plow any of these alleyways is dangerous and could result in either damage to a borough vehicle or to an adjoining residence, snow will not be removed from those alleys until conditions permit safe passage for DPW vehicles.  This is in accordance with New Jersey Statutory Regulations which only require removal of snow and/or ice from main thoroughfares within the Borough.

Alternate parking is available at Tuxhorn Park, 100 Church Street and the lot on Gardner Street between Main and North Streets.  Parking is at your own risk.


Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
